Colour me........


Because I have been housebound for the past week with a very painful back my younger son and fiancee picked up some of Papermill's new colour card for me and when I opened the first box, well you can't just buy one can you, this green was on top. It looked so fresh and springlike that I had to make a card - and this is it. Stayed with the green, stamping lightly with two shades on a background of a lighter green and then with darker ink for a feature. Had to stamp a button to match and attached with green ribbon. Used Agapanthus stamp and Whispers inkpads.

Liked this one so tried using blue.

Layers of blue card and a Stamp Francisco rubber stamp - Torn Hat -stamped with Whispers ink Starry, Starry Night. Love this stamp and like the faded effect using blue on blue gives. Little boy looks so wistful.
